The interactive exhibits for children of all ages are fun for young and old alike. At the Nevada History Exhibit, children and adults alike can participate in a scavenger hunt that incorporates Nevada State history, symbols, counties, and politics. Put on a hard hat and protective goggles and then become the archeologist as you pick and brush away stone to reveal ancient bones and rocks.

There is a financial center where children can learn about dollars and cents. There is also a grocery store check out section where children can buy and sell products and practice addition and subtraction. If you want to shake your bootie – check out the Dance Revolution Section. Remember the movie "Big" – then step onto the walk-on piano and play a little tune. In addition, if that is not enough, explore robotics, magnetism, dress up, a doctor exhibit and much, much more!

As a private non-profit educational center, the Children's Museum of Northern Nevada, Inc., relies on private donations, fund-raisers, memberships and admissions to fund their day-to-day operation. The Museum is dedicated to "offering unique and innovative, hands-on learning adventures in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities, providing the joy of discovery to children and families from economically and culturally diverse backgrounds".
